If you want to meet an author this weekend, you have numerous opportunities!
On Saturday, October 22 at 2:00 p.m. at the Ross-Cherry Creek Branch join Sara Avant Stover as she discusses The Way of the Happy Woman: Living the Best Year of Your Life. Ms. Stover knows that millions of women are trying to do it all, all the time, and end up feeling depleted and defeated. In this inspiring afternoon, you'll learn how to connect to your innate happiness through refreshingly simple practices and bring yourself back in sync with your own cycles and those of nature. Stover's suggestions nurture the body, invigorate the mind, and lift the spirit, yielding the same benefits as a getting-away-from-it-all retreat!
